Vocational Education Fund – Education Aid For Palestinians (EAP)
Vocational education fund aims to provide courses in vocational training for Palestinian youth who were not offered the chance to continue in their academia. We aim to provide them with the required skills and experience to develop in the local market.
As of late, Vocational Training has become an important sector in the Gaza Strip, with the latest World Bank economic report stating that Gaza’s economy and unemployment rate is now the highest in the world. As of last year, 43% of Gaza’s 2 million residents are currently unemployed, with youth’s unemployment levels reaching almost 60%.
This project aims to provide financial assistance and work with accredited educational institutions to promote vocational training. By providing an intensive one-year training course for those who were not given the chance to pass secondary school, they can now be equipped with transferrable skills required to thrive in the working environment.
